Our collection of folk narratives can be reached via a catalogue search based on different search parameters. Copies of summaries and complete narratives texts are available.
You are invited to use our library of over 2,000 books concerning folk narratives and folk literature. Visitors will have access to computers, scanned documents, and audio-visual equipment to view and listen to recorded sessions.
All of the narratives are sorted according to an internal indexing system based on the following categories: Ethnicity/ Storyteller/ Recorder/ Holidays/ Colors/ Music/ Well-known Personalities/ General Personalities (kings, wise men, rabbis, mothers, etc.)/Places in Israel/ Plants and Animals.
Over half of our collection is indexed according to the Aarne-Thompson tale types and can be accessed accordingly.
